Start at the top of the tree ramp. From here traverse left along the face, there is a nice rail about midway along the face for your hands, but the feet are crystal nubs. When you get to the bolt, there is a thin ripple rising up and to the left. Step onto the ripple and match feet to high-step about 4' up the ripple (crux). You'll have basically no hands as you roll over onto the high-step, but there is a small crimp directly above the foot which lets you get to stand and reach a series of jugs on a wide left-facing flake (should take a #1 or #2). After getting off the face, its a long moderate runout on the slab up to a very dirty bulge with some narrow crimps to the finish in the trees.


40' left of Rum Doodle. Start at the very top of the tree ramp, moving left onto the face.


Bolt at crux, no top anchors.
